Hi. I'm paewookyung, and this is my first posting in this site. please take note that
english is not my mother tongue. so please understand some of my gramatic mistake.;

Anyway, let's get this started!
This is a portable lie-detector built in Altiod tin. maybe you could have some fun useing this thing.

note: this detector is less sensitive then a real one. this could be miss some (many) of the lies.

Step 1: Things you'll need.

You will need some things below for this project.

1. circuit board
2. 10K& resister
3. 47K& resister
4. 470& resister
5. 1M& resister x2
6. 47K& VR
7. knob for VR
8. 2N3904 transistor x3
9. 0.1 ? mylar cap
10. slide switch.
11. 9V bettery snap
12. LED (one red, one green)
13. solding tools.
14. drill
15. basic tools,
16. valcro
17. aluminum foil
....and most of all, Altoid tin!
<p>Hahahaha...........</p><p>good one i have done this.</p><p>Manoj</p><p><a href="http://www.nrdcentre.com/" rel="nofollow">www.nrdcentre.com</a></p>
<p>hey can you please send me a step by step guide on how to assemble the lie detector? My email is lindatoomey1220@gmail.com <br>Great project !!</p>
Please bro you have a video
<p>So cool! I so want to do this... thank you!</p>
<p>Anyone actually get this to work properly? Just getting the red light problem :/ any ideas?</p>
<p>can you send me the back view of the finished circuit board?my email is venkateshharshit@gmail.com</p>
<p>kindly tell me how can we make this project based on microcontroller???</p>
<p>That would be a waste of 20 bucks. Arduinos are cool, but alot of projects use arduinos when they are not needed. Unless you have to have one to make the project work, they tend to be a waste of money, and space. </p>
<p>Pretty easy to find &quot;Arduinos&quot; for around 3 bucks</p>
<p>where? in that case useful, but 21 dollars seems a bit much to me when you could usually make the project without.</p>
<p>you need to show two capacitors in the circuit diagram where we should attach the second capacitor and plzzz tell me what will be the value of that capacitor</p>
<p>how can we make this project baised on microcontroller</p>
<p>HI.. this project looks quite simple.. But.. whats the assurance that it detects lie?? Can u please explain that perspective??</p>
<p>I am sorry I mean, do you need the VR?</p>
<p>Do you need to VR?</p>
<p>it's too much easy ... because i make it </p>
<p>hi bro...can u send me snap of ur project coz m crently working on this project???</p>
<p>I saw this back in October and wanted to do it for a school project so I went to radioshack and ace to try to find everything and ended up going to radioshack multiple times to get the parts. I built this with my dads help because i am new to circuits and we haven't been able to get it to work. the LEDs won't light up, we connected the LEDs to a wire and then to a 9 volt and they light up but then when we connected the 9 volt into the circuit nothing happened. can you maybe tell me what might have gone wrong? you can email me and i can send you pictures of what it looks like 18kagarvey@wausauschools.org thank you!</p>
<p>did you connected leds to 9volts with or without the limiting resistor?, if without then your leds are probably toasted. </p>
<p>where do we attach that knob in the circuit..??</p><p>the circuit is not so clear..!!</p>
<p>Can sb explain the working of the electronics of this and if anybody has tested this and if it works</p>
<p>can we use subsitute for Altoid tin</p>
<p>Awesome project! Thanks for putting this on the site.</p>
<p>did this work for you </p>
<p>plzz post the block diagram</p>
Will a 50K VR work at all?
<p>you can snd pictures ya video of you circuit backside and frontside how u have wireing u have did i cant understand plz snd me pic ya vdo</p>
<p>i cant understand what you just wrote there...</p>
<p>Can you add a video also ?</p>
<p>in circiut diamgram mylar cap is not their</p>
<p>in circiut diamgram mylar cap is not their</p>
<p>in circiut diamgram mylar cap is not their</p>
<p>is there a space between the aluminum foil, or does it touch?</p>
<p>from where u have get how to make lei dector</p>
<p>how to use it it continuesly red light burning</p><p>plz hel me</p>
<p>plz reply me </p><p>my brother</p>
<p>i cant see wiring proper le</p>
<p>i have made this as same circuit digram i have on the switch on and it continusly red coming and green light is not coming what can i do plz hel me brother</p>
<p>about how much does this cost</p>
<p>I put it together like shown on the schematic, but all I get is a constant red light, and when I turn the pot all the way the green LED starts to glow, bu just a bit, and red is still on.<br>If anyone can please help</p>
<p>I built this schematic but I can't quite get it to tell weather your telling a lie. When I turn it on it only lights up green. How can i fix this problem?</p>
<p>Hi, can you explain how this circuit works ? I am taking it as my Basic Electronics Project . I want to know how it work ( how it detect lie). Plz reply me </p>
<p>Did this actually work for anyone? Because I don't want to waste my time on a frivolous idea.</p>
Ima use it as my science project
i am raghav.i am 13 years old i understood everything but what is the thing up of slide switch or down of knob .plese reply <br>
hi raghav were you talking about the potentiometer or the perf board
plz say your email id i got every part its now working i think you can help me. my email id is bhattadraghav59@gmail.com
